People's Announces Co-op Scholarship
In an effort to reach out to the local community and to assist students in furthering their education, Ocean Beach People's Organic Food Market, a California food cooperative, is sponsoring two $1,000 scholarships for all eligible college-bound high school seniors.
With these scholarships, Ocean Beach People's Organic Food Market is reaching out to extend knowledge and appreciation of the cooperative business model in order to effect change. We believe the co-op business model fosters thriving communities and we wish to encourage young people to seek alternatives to "business as usual" and actively engage in their communities at the local level.
To access the application, please click on the Board of Directors link from the menu on the left, then click on either the Word document under 2017 Scholarship. The application period runs until March 1, 2017.
